Photo essay-ish: Morning at the cemetery

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

One overcast morning in April 2016, I took a borrowed Lumix camera and went to a cemetery down the street from where I was staying in Stuttgart to take pictures. I’ve always been fascinated with European graveyards, but my first real (accidental) trip to one was in Malta. I’ve tried to see as many as I possibly could ever since.

The pics here are from the Pragfriedhof, the 3rd largest cemetery in Stuttgart, Germany. It has well-tended flowerbeds, statues of angels, and lots of history. Locals kind of use it as a shortcut to get to a nearby U-Bahn (city train) stop. I got some weird looks from the workers tending the cemetery because it’s apparently not common to see an Asian girl on her own, taking pics of tombstones. But nobody bothered me, living or otherwise.

Hope you enjoy this set!
